Song of the Week: "In the Midnight Hour/Lay Lady Lay"

Songs for Becca #22. Here's a mash-up/medley from Ben E. King's 1970 album Rough Edges. It contains one of the most soulful versions of "Lay Lady Lay" I've ever heard. Bob Dylan's original is one of my favorite songs, but wow, my wife hates it so much. She loves this one, though. It's just Bob Dylan's voice that turns her off. Give it to someone like Ben E. King, slow it down and give it some soul, and she loves it. And it's pretty fantastic. Soul music is the best music.
